Animal Care Hospital is devoted to your pet’s wellbeing.

Animal Care Hospital was founded in 1964 by Dr. John Matchette. The original hospital was located on Thomas Road, just a few blocks east of our present facility. We moved the practice to our current location just west of 32nd street in 1981. Dr. Stephen Bishop joined the practice in 1973, Dr. Mark Halver in 1981, and Dr. Tara Temple in 2006. Dr. Bishop ran our outpatient practice (Animal Care Clinic) from 1977 until 1988. That practice was located in the Town and Country shopping center at 20th Street and Camelback.

For 25 years, we have been accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). This means we are regularly, voluntarily evaluated on over 900 standards of care set forth by the AAHA. AAHA members must meet stringent standards for comprehensive professional, medical and surgical care and are constantly striving for quality. Only 14% of small animal hospitals in the country are members of the AAHA, so we’re proud of this distinction that sets us apart. Our continued membership in AAHA shows that we’re dedicated to providing excellent veterinary medicine to your pets.

We are dedicated professionals who combine compassion and concern with state-of-the-art practice techniques and diagnostics. We chose to be in this profession because we genuinely care for people and their companion animals, and our integrity is known throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area.
